What a great and different report.

Thanks so much for a good report. Makes me want to visit the park, and that's what this whole project is all about.

A "new to you" bike

Sorry to hear about the brake problems. Looking on the bright side, you do get to pick up a different bike. Hope it's one that you really enjoy.

A different kind of park

Aldntn,

This one looks a bit different than most I've visited. It's not too far away. I really need to get out and ride some. Rain and work are conspiring against me.

This is how you know you're in the (deep) south. Even in Tennessee they don't know what boiled peanuts are. I think you have to be in a Gulf state.
